Not the least of which is the worst play I've seen by a D probably since Colin Campbell(former Oiler D and hopeless in the capacity) Happened in the last Chicago game, everybody knows which one, The whole league got a laugh. I'd still like to see Petry explain what he was doing on that play.
I'm not saying Petry doesn't ever make mistakes, but he's a better skater, passer, shooter, and more physical than Gilbert. He's hardly been the reason our team sucks. But right, one play means a guy is a terrible dman. By your logic, Lidstrom was also terrible since Nuge made him look ridiculous on a play
